VoicePrint Proud To Be A Part Of "End Exclusion 2007"
On November 22 VoicePrint took part in End Exclusion 2007, a national event held at Ottawa.
It was an exciting day as hundreds of citizens from across Canada came together to celebrate the accomplishments of persons with disabilities -- and to call on governments and citizens to move toward and inclusive society for all Canadians.
The event featured the unveiling of a National Action Plan, which was endorsed by a multitude of national organizations, including VoicePrint.
Highlights of the day included speeches from a variety of advocates from the disabled community, addresses from federal cabinet ministers and a march to Parliament Hill in inclement conditions, which signified the strength and solidarity of the disabled community.
Though the event has concluded for this year, you can still participate in End Exclusion 2007 by:
- Listening to the audio version of the National Action Plan
- Or visiting the End Exclusion website
